It's quit hard to tell in this game. My guess is that it is a good sign if your countdown timer starts at 25. (and jumps to 15) After todays 'Server change' hotfix my timer always started at 50 though.
Mine starts at 25 every single time and jumps to 15. Well, every single time that I was paying attention last night at least.
Mine does that all the time, has done since I got this game, sometimes starts at 47 then 25 then 15 too, it hasn't changed with the last server update..
Well, I'll just take what y'all said and back out of some matches and see which scenarios show that I'm host. Thanks for the replies. Hope we did get the dedis. That would be nice.
Well if anyone comes up with a definitive answer, then please let me know. Although if dedis were turned on I guess I won't be host. If I even was. I don't know. The game has been running well, and the countdown has been starting at 25 (when I paid attention at least), but it's not like I have some kind of god mode going on. My score is just closer to what I would normally expect given that I'm still learning the game.
If you're going 60-4 while everyone else is barely going positive, then yes, you are the host.
Nope... I usually know when I am host when people in the lobby say they are lagging and I'm not... that's when I go "F***, sorry everyone XD"
just pulled host 3 more times in the past 10-15 games. clock started at 50, showed my whole team connected on the top right, then the clock immediately went to 15 and the countdown began. again i noticed ZERO difference in the connection or my scores while hosting. none at all.
